. i'll hook you up. >>> thanks to you at home for staying with us the next hour. okay. when japanese pilots turned to kamikaze attacks in world war ii it was meant to not be only effective in a direct sense, but also terrifying. the piloted aircraft used as a missile could obviously do great direct damage to whatever it hit. the psychological effect of being up against an enemy who would do that, a military that would expect its own men to deliberately kill themselves, was also just meant to terrorize, to make their enemies believe there was nothing they wouldn't do, no lengths they would not go to. when iran and iraq went to war with each other in 1980, a war that stretched on for almost the full decade of the 1980s, the iranian side used human beings, masses of human beings to clear minefields, to walk out into mined areas, setting off the mines killing those people in the process but clearing for others to pass through the same area safely. they used swarms of humans often unarmed, untrained young boys to physically swarm over armed enemy positions. it was the human wave tactic. i

with us the next hour. you might remember back in april, it was a really weird day on the stock market where the market took a huge sudden tumble, but it wasn't for any market-related reason. may have stuck in your mind what happened that day back in april because that was the day the stock market dove because of a tweet. a false tweet which said that president obama had been injured. >> it all began about 1:07 this afternoon. with this tweet from "associated press." "breaking, two explosions in the white house, and barack obama is injured." the message went to "ap's" 1.9 million twitter followers and spread like a virus. re-tweeted almost 5,000 times within a minute. but it was a fake. "ap's "account had been hacked. >> it partly explains the unusual activity in the dow. >> the dow began plunging, and within three minutes, dropped more than 140 points. >> you looked around the floor. you saw people running. you saw people upset. not sure what was going on. just watching this market trade lower. >> automatic trading programs kicked in. >> human beings weren't making these trades
